There is no lack of Italian food in New Haven, but we had our best meal in ages tonight at L’Orccio. The homemade pasta is perfect, as was the gnocchi that my husband ordered. And my branzino in a wine sauce with spiralized zuccini was...More

No - we street-parked. A great length of nearby street parking is "no parking" marked so you might have to walk a block or two.
